- Bootloader should be unlocked.
- Flash a recovery tool, prefered TWRP.
- Make a Nandroid backup of your current rom.
Steps to follow
- Conenct Nexus 4 to PC via the USB cable and be sure that you have the Android SDK installed and adb working.
- Reboot your device now in the recovery mode.
- Go to Advanced >> ADB Sideload within TWRP. Check both Wipe Dalvik Cache and Wipe Cacke boxes.
- Open the command prompt on your computer and type out the “adb sideload” followed by the path where you kept the downloaded zip file.
- Another method is, transfer the zip file into your SD card and then use the Install/flash zip option from the recovery mode. But the former method looks quite easier than the later.
- The ROM will slowly get flashed on your device.
- Reboot your device.
- Now check for the root by starting Titanium backup. A root checker application may actually tell that you’re rooted or not. If everything is OK then you are done, but if the root does not work, you can proceed to the next step.
- Flash the SuperUser from this post. Few users says that the CWM is not working properly, but flashing through the TWRP and selecting Fix Superuser Permissins at the end works fine.
